What we do upon some great occasion will probably depend on what we already are; and what we are will be the result of previous years of self-discipline.
What you do today really does matter? If you are not preparing today, how will you be prepared for the unknown that is certain to come in the future. Strengthen your body, soul, and mind today in order to meet the challenges of tomorrow.
The Virtue of Temperance
Control. Discipline. Restraint. Call it what you will. But if you don’t have it, then life will be much harder. Rather than automating your life for success, your habits will be weak and detrimental. Temper your desires of excess. There is joy in moderation.
